Needle felting with cookie cutters

unikatissima Cookie Cutter Needle Felting

Via craftzine I found a tutorial on how to felt a needle brooch using a cookie cutter.
She used flower cookie cutters, but now, where Christmas isn’t really far away any more, we can dig out the Christmas cookie cutters: stars, moons, Christmas trees, but also hearts etc.

I couldn’t try it yet, but I intend to. And if it works (what I’m assuming ;-)), I want to try to make my own ‘moulds’ from cardboard stripes.
I’m agog ;-)

Wrap a Rock

Embellishing rocks seems to be quite popular. Some people paint them, some people embroider them, some people felt them, some people wrap them in lace, some people wrap them in polymer clay, some people crochet them and some people bead them.
And if you want them to be fragrant, check back the previous mentioned Fragrant Rocks.
I never did anything with rocks, because I’m living on sandy ground ;-)
But all those rocks rock ;-)

Felting Soap

Felting Soap

I heard somewhere about felting soap and I asked myself why one should do this!
Then I found the tutorial on how to felt soap, tried it and really enjoyed it ;-)
It is not alone the process of felting, but later the washing of my hands with my felted soap felt wonderful too! So I didn’t give it away but kept it just for myself ;-)
It is gone now and I really should felt another.
